Best selling cars
The Ford F-150 has been the best-selling truck (and vehicle) in the United States for more than 40 years. It's also the only truck Edmunds has bashed with a sledgehammer for a YouTube video.
The very first Chevy pickup truck from 1918 came without a bed, and buyers had to install their own. Thankfully, today's Chevrolet Silverado comes with everything you need in a full-size pickup.
The Ram name only showed up on a pickup truck in 1981, making the Ram 1500 technically a millennial. It's also comfortable and capable, winning our award as the top-rated truck in 2019 and 2020.
4. Toyota RAV4
The Toyota RAV4 is the best-selling passenger vehicle that's not a full-size truck, and it's responsible for kicking off the SUV craze. The name stands for "Recreational Activity Vehicle."
5. Honda CR-V
Back when it launched, Honda said that the CR-V's name stood for "Comfortable Runabout Vehicle." After 25 years on the market, we can't disagree: The CR-V is a comfortable family runabout.
6. Honda Civic
The Honda Civic is the car that made Honda a household name. With multiple body styles and engines, the Civic has broad appeal that's kept it near the top of the best-seller list for decades.
The Chevrolet Equinox launched in 2005, meaning it's the youngest vehicle on this list. It's also the only one other than the full-size trucks to offer a diesel engine.
8. Toyota Camry
The Toyota corporation started out making textile looms. These days, the Toyota Camry does a different kind of weaving, and it's the only nameplate on this list to have competed in NASCAR.
9. Honda Accord
The Honda Accord was the first foreign vehicle to be manufactured in the United States, and more than 10.5 million have been built here since the first factory opened in Ohio in 1982.
10. Toyota Corolla
With more than 44 million Corollas sold around the globe over 50 years of production, the Toyota Corolla is the best-selling car in history.
